It is a bit strange that two games under development by two very different studios end up being extremely similar and release in the same month. Of course I’m talking about Battleborn by Gearbox and Overwatch by Blizzard. A lot of the similarities end when you really dive into each game, and if you are stuck on a fence trying to decide which game to dump your money into, we got you covered.
Overwatch is a new IP from Blizzard that a lot of fans have been desperately waiting for. The game takes on a “MOBA” (Multi-play Online Battle Arena) approach, in a way, and blends it with an arena FPS (first person shooter) with a unique twist around every turn. The game’s dynamics are beautifully crafted and the gameplay is simply addicting and fun, but is there enough content to warrant a purchase? Find out in our preview.
Blizzard announced that they will release a series of animated shorts leading up to the release of Overwatch and today we got our first episode! It's rather good too!
The full game releases May 24th, but you can play it early during the beta! Find out when that is after the jump.
